  • Appetite suppression: Semaglutide helps to reduce appetite, helping you feel fuller for longer periods of time and making it easier to stick to a calorie-restricted diet.
  • Slows digestion: Semaglutide slows down the rate at which food moves through the digestive system, which can further promote feelings of fullness and reduce the desire to snack between meals.
  • Regulates blood sugar control by reducing glucose production in the liver and increasing insulin secretion.
